Default AJ:Kubiak concerned about backup receiver situation

Quote:
Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is growing concerned about the Texans backup wide receiver position.

“I’m concerned, to be honest with you," Kubiak told a media gathering Sunday afternoon. "(The backup group is) so young. You usually keep five guys. To sit here and tell you who (the fourth and fifth receivers) are right now, I think it’s a big toss-up." (houstontexans.com)

Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones hold down the top three spots but it's still not clear who will claim the WR4 and WR5 positions on the 53 man roster come September 3.

Entering training camp it seemed that WR4 was Dorin Dickerson's position to lose but the emergence of Lestar Jean over the past two weeks has shined a new light on the backup receiver competition.

Jean has impressed Texans coaches in camp and he had two big catches in the win over the Jets on Monday Night Football.
Quote:
"I think (the competition) is wide open," said Kubiak. "I would just say this: whoever’s going to be (WR4), whoever’s going to be (WR5), they need to earn the spot. We’re not just going to give them away. It’ll be very competitive here the next two weeks.”

I'm not sure if Kubiak was intending to light a fire under Dickerson, but if he was, I'd say he was successful. A few hours after Kubiak's comments, DIckerson posted this on his Twitter account:

"Never been givin anything in my whole life. Dont plan on having anything "givin" to me now."

So stay tuned, Texans fans. It should be a fun week watching the position battle at backup wide receiver.

Default Re: AJ:Kubiak concerned about backup receiver situation

This is the same guy who received miniscule production from his previous #4 WR (David Anderson), but is suddenly worried about that spot? I'd say Kubiak must be feeling pretty good about this team if this is one of his larger concerns.

Dickerson and Jean should be the 4th and 5th in no particular order.

Keep them both, play them both.

As long as AJ doesn't go down, I feel really comfortable about our offense. WR is even less of a concern if Tate can keep moving forward.

He's concerned about having more talent and depth at the position since like...ever?

Yeah, clearly a ham-handed attempt at lighting a fire. That's fine if it works and it seems like it may have.

You knew what you were getting from DA .... It wasnt going to be spectacular but you could expect him to be steady Im not so sure you can expect that from this group of recievers behind AJ & Walter .... consistancy is not something JJ is known for and the guy's ebhind him havent proven much at the NFL level.

Default Re: AJ:Kubiak concerned about backup receiver situation

Maybe the other WRs in camp might try to give DD and Jean some competition. That would probably motivate Dickerson more than anything Kubiak might slip to media.

I think the difference is David Anderson reached his full potential and went about as far as his athletic ability would take him. You can't really lecture someone into being taller and faster. However Dorin is a athletic freak, maybe Kubiak feels he isn't playing up to his full capabilities and is trying to kick him in the rear.

IDK, but I do have to say, I like this new Kubiak. Looks like someone is trying to get his feet out of the fire. It's do or die for him this year. No more Mr. Nice Guy.

Default Re: AJ:Kubiak concerned about backup receiver situation

I said it once and I will say it again, I would've signed randy moss or edwards as my 2 and bumbed everyone else down. I would've truly tried to outscore teams and made teams account for my #2. Right now, teams don't respect the #2,#3,or #4 wr. If johnson gets hurt, its a wrap in terms of big plays in the passing game.

Default Re: AJ:Kubiak concerned about backup receiver situation

I think it's hard for any of these guys to distinguish themselves because they're not getting their passes thrown by Schaub. Leinart is throwing their passes and all he's been doing is short dump off stuff and not targeting the WR's down field much at all. I'd really like to see something from Jean, Dickerson, and Tolliver.

Default Re: AJ:Kubiak concerned about backup receiver situation

We may be keeping Darling instead of Dickerson or Jean and put one on PS. Darling has been more of injury prone since he was drafted back in 2004 by Ravens. He did have 100 yds game back in 2007 and if he shows up in last two preseason games, we may ending up keeping this guy. May be I am reading too much into what Kubiak said about veteran WR but this is the only veteran WR I can think of from our current roster. May be we scoop someone after final roster cut or Kubiak is just telling Dickerson and Jean to step up. I don't know but it is a possibility.

Go Texans!!!

I think Kubiak is starting to go insane from withdrawals from not being able to use a 4th round pick on a TE...poor guy.

if hes so worried about the 4 reciever maybe they should be seeing more time on the field instead of having JJ out there for 3 quarters. let them distinguish themselves instead of making JJ a focal point in preseason
